Roofs For Heroes Program

Southwest Florida’s leading Roofing Contractor launches Roofs for Heroes program with a bang!

What started out as one roof for one deserving man quickly morphed into a life-changing event for Mr. Harris Nelms when Florida Southern Roofing decided to get some of their friends involved.

ELLENTON, Florida (January 19, 2016) – Florida Southern Roofing (FSR) has always given back to the community it serves, but owners Brian and Tim Wallace, were determined to do more. Less than one week after introducing their new “Roofs for Heroes” concept to their staff and asking them to start looking for worthy recipients, as if by fate, Dave Daily of the Bradeb River VFW approached Cindi Bass, Director of Business Development for Florida Southern, and asked her if they ever did roofs for charity.

Daily put Cindi in touch with Chaplain George Johnston who had the perfect candidate for the inaugural Roofs for Heroes donation. Unable to afford some desperately-needed roof repairs and physically incapable of performing them himself, Mr. Harris Nelms, a veteran with a service-connected disability, was forced to cover his roof with plastic to keep water from entering his home. Knowing this was not a long-term solution, he reached out to the VFW for assistance.

After visiting the Nelms residence, Florida Southern realized that the need was far greater than they could have imagined, so they decided to reach out to some of their favorite business partners who did not hesitate to lend a helping hand and Roofs for Heroes snowballed into a life-changing event for one man. Please take a look at the impressive list of contractors and vendors that FSR was able to assemble.

This Saturday, January 23rd from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., you will have the opportunity to witness the transformation of a home and a life as several of the partners in this endeavor converge at the home of Mr. Harris Nelms in Ellenton, Florida.

Although Mr. Nelms is a veteran, military service is not a requirement for consideration in the Roofs for Heroes program. If you or someone you know is a hero who is down on their luck and in need of a roof, please visit www.floridaroofing.com/roofs-for-heroes to fill out a nomination form.
